What I Do

I’m Joshua Kagi, a full-stack digital producer & project manager based in the Philadelphia region.

Too many stories are produced in a vacuum. A means to an end. A lead generation tool. Trendy, but with zero resonance. 

In my decades-long career, I’ve never let the form of media dictate how a story is told. Instead, I utilize whichever medium can best communicate a message in the clearest, most entertaining and most empathetic way. Whether that’s a video piece, a photo series, podcast, multi-media web build, social media series or simply well-written copy, I have developed the skillset and bring the toolkit to present an engaging message.

I don’t chase trends. You probably won’t find my work trending on TikTok. Frankly, if you need a producer to get the largest reach possible, it’s not me. However, if you want your message to matter, to take root in the very being of your audience, I hope you’ll reach out. I choose to nourish the small and engaged crowd over the large pool of aimless scrollers on social media. 

I love working with brands, organizations and individuals who are doing their best to make this world a better place. In my role, I will help you identify, produce the messages, and build the platforms which foster a core community of your strongest advocates.

My work has included everything from documentary filmmaking, to sports journalism, to political campaigns, fundraising campaigns around disaster relief, building and maintaining internal communications tools to improve and address holistic care, live event production and far more. I’ve worked with individuals, non-profits, politicians and government agencies, start-ups, Fortune 500 companies and every size in-between.

I’d love to hear about your projects and how I can help
